Hello everyone...and a "Happy Thursday" to you all! I pray that your day is off to a good start...and that you are truly experiencing the presence of God, as you journey through this day! I am enjoying my day, as we got some much needed rain last night! What a calm and peaceful morning it is, as I view this brand new day that the Lord hath made! If nothing else...we should definitely have a heart of thankfulness, for these new beginnings that stand before us each morning...praise Him!!
As I was focusing on our Bible verse for the day, in Philippians 4:8; I was thinking on how easily it can be, to carry the thoughts of yesterday, into a brand new day. Have you ever woke up in the morning...not thinking about a thing...that is, until you finally remembered what happened in the previous day? I wonder why we choose to connect to thoughts that will only keep us down and make our day miserable?
No matter what we are facing right now...there is always something positive to think on...even if it is only that we made it to another day. I have truly come to see through time; that our thoughts are what carry us into other moments...whether they be good moments or bad moments. In other words...if we are focusing on everything negative; then these thoughts are going to take us by the hand and lead us down a path; that only walks us into other miserable thoughts...and before we know it...we are depressed, with no hope in sight. On the other hand...when we can rise above the discouraging moments, to focus on God and especially on verses in the Bible that can fill our thoughts with hope; then the God of all peace will be with us...to bring a calm, into these troubled moments.
What are you thinking on today? Are you choosing to go with every negative thought that enters your mind...or are you focusing on the good things that can draw you closer to God, during these difficult moments in your life?
As we walk through another new day; I pray that God will bless us all, with a strength that can help us to rise above despair...to a place, where we can deeply connect with God, rather than a problem, whose only aim is to make life miserable!
Have a great day! See you later...and God bless!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
